This past week we have been really busy with Holy Week and then finally Pascha! This year we took the 2 older kids with us and it was very exciting for them to be involved. The service begins at 11:15 pm and doesn’t end until 2am- but the time is exciting with a procession, all sorts of shouting (Christ is Risen!), and candles. After the service, we break the fast and eat lots of chocolate, good cheese, and champagne or whatever item you have gone “without”. We didn’t get home until 4am…the birds were already singing!
I know a lot of you don’t read my blog for any sort of religious inspiration, so I’ll just show the night in images.
If you look really close, you can see Simon. He did a marvelous job considering the time he stood standing (10:30-2) and he did the same thing the night before. He insisted on participating.
A shot of Nathan and I with Ellie. She insisted in wearing a dress I wore as a flower girl in the 1970s…she pulled it off well.
Okay, time to take a nap. This all night thing has made me all jittery and achingly tired.I’ve missed posting, but it was a nice break. I’ll be showing some skirts I made the girls tomorrow.
